About Probate and Estate Planning

There is already enough to process with the loss of a loved one, let alone going into probate. Probate is the legal process of authenticating a decedent’s will, taking inventory and appraising the estate, and distributing the assets according to the decedent’s last wishes. If there is no will, the process for probate remains the same. In this case, probate is still required to pay any outstanding bills and distribute the assets to the designated beneficiaries.

Probate should be avoided as much as possible. Planning with an estate attorney in advance can save you the headache of probate court, potential relationship strains, and financial stress. One advantage of probate is having the court settle disputes between heirs. But you also run the risk of higher costs and a drawn out process that could take anywhere from a few months to several years. For a costly and complicated process, entrust your probate disputes and estate-related cases to a reliable probate and estate planning lawyer.
